When we communicate we tend to show up in certain ways, and we often don’t realise how we seem to others.

For example, when you communicate with others…
…Do you speak a lot or listen a lot?
…Do you identify problems or solve them?
…Do you seek harmony or do you stir the pot?
…Do you often judge or seek to learn?
…Are you seen as a student or an expert?

Often, we don’t know, so ask colleagues and friends for three words that describe the way you show up.

The answers you get are a major part of your personal brand, of how people see you. Does this describe the person you want to be seen as?

If not, what are you going to do about it?

And if you think you don’t have a personal brand, or it doesn’t matter, think again and click here.

My best wishes, Paul
